Electronic Health Record Modernization Program
VA Northern Indiana Health Care System and its community-based outpatient clinics will transition to the new electronic health record (EHR). This is a Veteran-centric approach that will better support service members as they transition from military service to Veteran status.
What is the EHRM program?
One of VA’s highest priorities is to provide quality health care for Veterans. To support this mission, VA is launching a new EHR system nationwide — the same best-in-industry system that is being deployed by the Department of Defense (DOD). VA’s Electronic Health Record Modernization Integration Office is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the system at all VA sites.
The three major goals of the EHRM program are to:
- Implement a new EHR system that is interoperable with DOD and community care providers to allow seamless sharing of records from Veterans’ active duty service and beyond.
- Provide clinicians with one complete picture of a Veteran’s medical history throughout their military career.
Offer Veterans an improved and consistent scheduling experience at VA medical facilities and community care partners nationwide.
How do Veterans access the new patient portal?
Once the VA Northern Indiana sites go “live” with the new EHR system, Veterans with a My HealtheVet account will move to a new patient portal, called My VA Health, to manage their VA health care online.
The new My VA Health patient portal can be accessed through My HealtheVet and VA.gov. You can sign in to My VA Health with any of these four accounts:
- Premium DS Logon account
- Premium My HealtheVet account
- A verified ID.me account*
- A verified login.gov account*
* Additional information on this solution is available at Verifying Your Identity On VA.gov | Veterans Affairs.
